John Gibbons has completed his coaching staff and once again the Blue Jays have re-hired a former coach, this time in the form of the club’s first Cy Young Award winner, Pat Hengten.
Pat Hengten has been named the Bullpen Coach for the second time, his first stint lasted the duration of the 2011 season. He has also spent time as Blue Jays Club Ambassador and Special Assistant to the Organization.
Known as a bulldog on the mound throughout his 14-year career, he won two World Series rings (did not pitch in ’92 Series) and the 1996 Cy Young Award. The two-time All-Star averaged 217 innings per season and posted a 107-85 win-loss record with the Blue Jays. After spending time in St. Louis and Baltimore he returned to Toronto to retire as a Blue Jay.
Hengten has also been added as an instructor at the upcoming coaching clinic in January.
